Srinagar: Youths across Kashmir Valley burst into celebrations as Pakistan defeated India in a one-sided cricket final of the ICC Champions Trophy on Sunday.

At most places the celebrating youths kept bursting firecrackers and dancing on the streets in Farah Kadal and Sekidafar areas of old city in Srinagar. Some exuberant youths threw firecrackers inside a CRPF camp and the local police station.

Five reasons why India lost the Champions Trophy final

Reports said three youths were injured when security forces chased the miscreants away.

Even women took to streets at many places in the Valley singing to express joy at Pakistan's victory against the defending champions.

How India's dream run began in 1985 and ended in 2017

In villages where the youths could not lay their hands on firecrackers, they beat drums to express their joy.

The authorities did not interfere with these expressions of joy and celebrations and the security forces intervened only at places where the excited youths came close to security forces camps.

Reports from south Kashmir districts of Anantnag, Shopian, Kulgam and Pulwama as also from north Kashmir districts of Ganderbal, Bandipora and Kupwara indicated that the celebrations were widespread in the Valley.
